A Baby Registry for a Second Baby

When I was pregnant with my first baby, I needed everything. So the baby registry I created had everything on it: diapers (cloth in my case), wipes, clothes, pajamas, even baby furniture. But what about when you are pregnant with your second baby? In my case, I had relatives ask me to put together a registry of things I needed. Can I tell you how excited I was to learn that I could make a baby registry with my beloved Target without even having to leave home? Because being pregnant with a toddler means I don’t have time to traipse around registering, even if it is at my favorite store.

So instead, one day I took a few minutes to register online. It was short, sweet, and super simple.

All I had to do was go to the Target website, click on the registry page, and fill in a few details. (P.S. They even have a Target registry app that makes it even more simple to register!) I would definitely recommend every expecting parent make their registry with Target. Here is the link to Target baby registries. They offer things like group gifting if some of your bigger items are in bad shape from the first baby and people want to go in on them together. You also get a 15% off discount for anything left on your registry that you’ll receive two months after your due date. Score!

I went ahead and ordered a few things while I was there!

The registry welcomed me with this cute page:

Adorable! I started adding things to my registry right away. Some of the things I recommend adding for second babies:

  • diapers
  • wipes
  • bottles if you are bottle feeding
  • nursing pads/cream if you are nursing
  • baby socks (how do they always go missing?)
  • a few cute outfits so poor baby doesn’t only get hand-me-downs
  • bathroom supplies

One of the nice things is that the Target baby registry pre-populated some items that everyone will need for babies. In fact, I already have some of these items to help me prepare! (In fact you can purchase them just by hovering over the picture below!)

 

I’ve already started to prepare the bathroom for the new baby. The Johnson’s® Bath Discovery Set is full of amazing products every parent needs. Instead of putting all of these items separately on the registry, I was able to just put this kit. It contains:

  • Johnson’s® head-to-toe baby lotion
  • Johnson’s® head-to-toe baby wash
  • Johnson’s® baby shampoo
  • Johnson’s® baby bubble bath
  • Johnson’s® baby powder
  • Desitin diaper rash cream
  • Johnson’s® safety swabs

I also put Infant TYLENOL® on the registry because it is always useful to have around the house! I tuck it and all of the other products up in a high cabinet that Andrew and I can reach but where we don’t have to worry about little ones getting into it.

The great thing is that the Johnson’s® Bath Discovery Set comes in a super handy plastic tote that I keep all of the bathtime stuff in and pull out just for bathtime. Simple!

    I added lots of pacifiers, washcloths, and other disposable items to my second child registry. #client
